And we’re back! After some significant upgrades and a redesign, commalg.org is back online. Thank you for your patience.
There are still some small broken things, and a lot of details to improve, but we wanted to get the conference lists back online as soon as possible. Over the next few weeks we will polish up all the rough edges.
The backend of the site is currently down for updates.
This is a read-only version, and we won’t be able to add new posts for a while. Thanks for understanding.

The AWM student chapter at the University of Utah is organizing a conference, May 20-22, 2020, aimed towards early graduate students and advanced undergraduate students interested in representation theory, number theory, and commutative algebra.
The goal of this conference is to:
- Foster a sense of community amongst underrepresented groups in mathematics,
- Introduce possible research areas,
- Expose the participants to role models and possible mentors.
Potential funding may be available for travel and accommodation for 40 participants, priority will be given to participants from underrepresented groups. To be considered for funding please register before January 31st, 2020. More information can be found at the conference website:
There will be a workshop at the University of Minnesota, April 12-14, 2019, focusing on forming a community of women and non-binary researchers interested in commutative algebra by learning about specific topics in commutative algebra from a diverse group of prominent active researchers.
This workshop is organized by Christine Berkesch, Juliette Bruce, and Patricia Klein.
For more information, see the website for the workshop.
The organizers of the collaborative research workshop Women in Commutative Algebra (WICA) 2019 invite researchers who are interested in participating to fill out the WICA Interest Form linked from the workshop website by April 1. For more information see our commalg.org post.
Inviting submission for a special issue in “Current Trends on Monomial and Binomial Ideals”
Recently, new trends on monomial ideals and binomial ideals have emerged. Remarkable developments in, for example, finite free resolutions, syzygies, regularity and symbolic powers of monomial ideals, and binomial ideals arising from combinatorial objects including finite graphs, lattice polytopes, and finite partially ordered sets have been brought about by a large number of authors. We
are editing for a Special Issue which aims to summarize recent achievements in these topics and to stimulate further research that invites breakthroughs in the theory of monomial and binomial ideals.
This Special Issue will be published in Mathematics (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/mathematics), an open access journal. We are inviting submissions for the issue. The deadline for submitting a paper is July 31, 2019.
For further information, please see the journal’s special issue announcement.

The workshop “FACARD, Frobenius Action in Commutative Algebra: Recent Developments” will be held at the Institute of Mathematics of the University of Barcelona on January 16 – 18, 2019.
The focus of the workshop is on recent developments in positive characteristic algebra and other related topics. It is addressed to Ph.D. students, postdocs and interested researchers in general. There will be two minicourses at graduate level and research talks given by international experts and young emerging scientists.

Jean-Louis Koszul, whose name is familiar to commutative algebraists as the namesake of the Koszul complex, passed away on 12 January 2018. Koszul was a student of Henri Cartan, one of the creators of the CIRM, and a member of Bourbaki. Altogether a giant of 20th century mathematics.
We are deeply sad to tell the community that Jan-Erik Roos passed away December 15, 2017.
His colleagues in Stockholm sent the following:
Jan-Erik Roos studies in Paris resulted in a substantial work on Noetherian categories. Since 1970 he held a professorship in Stockholm. One of his greatest achievements was to bring together two fields of mathematics, algebraic topology and commutative algebra. He noted that there were analogous results in these fields, and a fruitful cooperation began as a result. He had many research students taking part in this work. Jan-Erik was successful in using computers to solve problems and finding counterexamples. He was very active to the very last.
We are deeply sad to tell the community of the passing of Ragnar-Olaf Buchweitz, in Toronto on November 11 2017.
Ragnar made deep and influential contributions to an incredible range of topics, including singularity theory, deformations, commutative and noncommutative algebra, representation theory, and algebraic geometry. He was a generous mentor and advisor of graduate students, and a particular friend to the people behind this website. His passing is a great loss to our community.
